On the 28th February 1962, The eighth International Short Film Festival Oberhausen was held in North Rhine-Westphalia. It was there that twenty-six young Germany filmmakers gathered and created the Oberhausen Manifesto, declaring 'old film is dead. We believe in the new one.' The aim was to bring 'the birth of a new aesthetically, politically and financially independent German cinema'.

Now the Goeth Institut are holding a programme of events showcasing the films made as part of Oberhausen Manifesto The Oberhausen Manifesto project. Between the 28th October - 18th November, you can see a selection of short and feature films for just £3 each.

Focussing on the period between 1958 - 1960, these short films show how filmmakers experimented with sound and montage on a low budget, and the influences of neo-realism.

Looking at the years 1961 - 1964, the films screened will address Germany's socialist past.

Peter Schamoni's debut film, Closed Season for Foxes premiered in 1965, and portrays two young intellectuals that detest the bourgeois world they cannot escape.
